NEW YORK BLUELINER EXPECTED TO BRING STRONG TWO-WAY GAME TO ALBERNI VALLEY
The Alberni Valley Bulldogs are pleased to announce a commitment from 2001-born defenceman Moe Acee to join the team for the 2019/20 BCHL season.
Acee spent the past two seasons at the Avon Old Farms School in Avon, Connecticut. He picked up six goals and 21 points in 47 games in his time with the Winged Beavers, and also helped the Mid-Fairfield Rangers 18U team reach the quarter-finals at the 2019 USA Hockey Nationals in April.
“Moe is a mobile and steady defender who plays a smart two-way game,” says Bulldogs head coach Joe Martin. “We think he has the tools to become an excellent Junior A blue liner and we’re very happy that he’s chosen to take the next steps in his hockey career with the Bulldogs. We’re pleased to welcome Moe and his family to the Alberni Valley.”
“I’m thrilled to join the Bulldogs organization for next season,” says Acee, who describes himself as a strong two-way defender whose best assets are his skating and shooting. “Coach Martin and the rest of the Bulldogs staff have a tremendous reputation for winning and developing players. The town of Port Alberni has an incredible sense of community, and coming to an area that has similar qualities to where I grew up feels very welcoming. I’ve always had strong desire to play in the BCHL because I feel as a two-way defenseman I’d thrive in the league’s playing and coaching styles.”
Acee will join his new teammates when the Bulldogs’ 2019 Main Camp opens at the Alberni Valley Multiplex on August 19.
